Submit to Hot Tin Roof


Hot Tin Roof

Hot Tin Roof is a program to showcase current literary work produced in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids metro area. Each month, a selected piece under 1,000 words is published in Little Village, and the author receives a $100 honorarium.

The series takes its name from a famous play and movie by former Iowa City resident Tennessee Williams, who graduated from the University of Iowa in 1938. He was chosen as the patron saint of this series because his artistic life refused to be confined to work in any one genre. Moreover, it seemed right, given the many acclaimed writers to have lived and worked in Iowa City, to honor one who, at the time, was a relatively obscure undergraduate.

It is a pleasure to invite you to become part of Hot Tin Roof — a sampling of the Iowa City area’s renowned, yet growing, literary tradition.

Sponsors: Englert Theatre, Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature, M.C. Ginsberg, Little Village

Works may be in any genre, 1,000 words max. Submit your work to htr@littlevillagemag.com. Please attach your work as a Word Document, PDF or Rich Text file, and include a one- to two-line bio. Your name and contact information will be removed from your entry and it will be judged anonymously.

The series is designed to highlight new work produced in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids metro area, so entrants must live or work in the area at the time of submission. Please include your current address with your submission.

Submitted work must be the intellectual property of the entrant only.

For all published pieces we buy first North American serial rights for the print magazine and first worldwide serial rights for our website. All subsequent rights revert back to the author.
